Microsoft "Microsoft has some catching up to do. It's not a phrase you hear every day. But whether it's Apple Computer's iTunes-iPod combo or Google's advertising engine, the software maker's top executives readily admit that they are coming from behind. In a rare joint interview ahead of the CES, Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates and CEO Steve Ballmer outlined their plans to catch their rivals and discussed why it's Sony that will have to play catch-up in the video console wars."

I think that you're using a strange definition of "innovation". There are plenty of dreamers with good ideas that will never come to fruition because they lack the intangible "whatever" necessary to come to market. So, in my way of thinking, true innovation is about the process of making useful functionality available to a wide market. Whether or not you like Microsoft, they are indeed bringing new functionality to their market. That's innovative.
